Alyssa Pritchett training Elite

Double Double:

… The (UCLA recruited) walk-on who became a key player as an upperclassmen, has been training with the hopes of qualifying as elite for the first time.

I got the opportunity to talk to Alyssa about her past at Wildfire Gymnastics in Tustin, California, and UCLA, and her current training at Waller’s GymJam Academy in Santa Clarita, California. …

6. When did you realize that you wanted to continue doing gymnastics?

After Nationals. I remember standing there by our fourth place sign thinking, this can’t be it. I love this sport way to much to give it up. I didn’t know what I would be doing exactly, but I knew I was not about to quit.

I actually even tried to petition for a 6th year since I was injured for most of my freshman and sophomore year as well, but I didn’t make one of the qualifications.

Competing in PGC only fired me up more to continue gymnastics, and then I thought, why don’t I just completely go for it and train elite? So that’s exactly what I decided to do.

I get confused with all the blond UCLA hard bodies. And the names are similar…
